Does UFWDA have a privacy policy?  I searched in the forum and on the website, and Im not finding it.  If such a policy exists, can it be shared with me?  Can I plagiarize it for SFWDA and our local club?  If no such policy exists, has UFWDA discussed this with its legal counsel?

What protections are in place for the personal info that I share with UFWDA?  What does UFWDA do with my personal info?  Do you sell it?  Share it?  With whom do you share it?

The word "privacy" is not found in a search of this forum, so I may be kicking over an anthill.  Its one of the things I do best, unfortunately.

I am looking at the membership DB used by SFWDA and I have some concerns.  Those concerns extend to my own local club's efforts to protect members private data as well, so I am not looking to tear anything down, only to make sure that our respective @$$es are covered on this issue.

Here is a summary report on privacy breaches by "NGOs", most of which are non-profit organizations.  My point is that our type of organization is not immune to this kind of threat/vulnerability.

Hi Doc, good to have your question. The short answer is no, we don't have a formal written policy to my knowledge.
We do take a strong stance though that our data is not sold or shared. We are willing to use the mailing list on behalf of business sponsors, but only through UFWDA channels.
While saying that.. we did have a glitch in the first delivery of the online Voice where a portion of an email list was provided to JPFreek as publishers. That loophole has been addressed.

Regards
Peter

Part of my job as a network security puke for my employer is to sweat this issue on a major USG network.  I plan to draft a privacy policy for SFWDA and for my local club.  I will share that document with UFWDA if the leadership wants to consider using it for their own.

DRAFT initial unsigned DRAFT privacy policy for SFWDA, for your consideration.  I would appreciate comments, feedback, etc.

I like it, and it wouldn't take very much to modify it for UFWDA's purposes.

Its been pointed out to me that SFWDA is a 501(c)4, not 7 as stated in the document.
